Subaru Gearbox Second Hand vs Re-Manufactured

Second Hand Subaru Gearboxs warning!

  • Second hand gearboxs normally come from wrecked or accident damaged vehicles.
  • The condition of these gearboxs is uncertain and they may not be good value for money.
  • Possible additional hidden costs are hidden within warranty conditions excluding such items as front seals, timing belts and water pumps.
  • Most second hand warranty claims result in poor outcomes.
  • Service history is usually unknown as most wrecked vehicles are offered without consulting the previous owner.
  • Claimed km’s are not a reliable indicator of an gearbox’s condition, given possible poor service history
  • Subaru gearboxs may all look the same, but they are not. Subtle differences can cause major problems during and after installation.
  • Second hand gearboxs may have corrosion forming within the cylinder head gasket region and the only way to remove this and old cooling system water is to dismantle the gearbox completely (as occurs during reconditioning).
  • Some fuels have corrosive properties. Second hand gearboxs can have abnormal or aggressive wear on cylinder walls and piston rings.
  • Some specific model gearboxs have known inherited problems, such as oil consumption; this cannot be addressed in a second hand gearbox without dismantling and reconditioning.
